the poison of jealousy

i see the way you flirt with her
can’t you wait
until my back is turned?
i know you want me to see it
that lecherous look in your eye
so often turned on the unsuspecting
it’s not the way you sometimes
still look at me

i see the way you close in on her
the conspiratorial way
you lean into her
and turn on the charm
i see the high rush
of color in her cheek
i hear her coy giggle
and i hate her

i know the dance you do
for i’ve danced it with you
the heavy pulse of desire
that hangs on the heart like stone
and overrides common sense
i know what’s coming next
and i want someone to suffer
someone besides me

I feel the sting of another betrayal
i just have to watch again and again
damn this heart of mine
that can’t turn you aside
the poison of jealousy spreads
it infects the blood
with startling speed
and soon it will sicken us all

the poison of jealousy
